Each year, the Sunnyvale Award Program identifies companies that have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Sunnyvale area a great place to live, work and play.
“Quanergy prides ourselves in producing our LiDAR in Sunnyvale, and the city has been incredibly supportive to the company as we’ve expanded and needed more space to maintain the increased production of our sensors,” said Raj Bhullar, Vice President of Manufacturing at Quanergy. “There is an overwhelming amount of technology being developed in the Bay Area and Sunnyvale, and the fact that Quanergy was selected for this award speaks to the dedication of our team to constantly find new ways to build better LiDAR technology by streamlining the production process.”
